favorable numbers are the lowest in the nominee has had since 1992. that was george h.w. bush. you see the numbers in florida, virginia and ohio. in all three states, his favorable numbers are below 50%. and those 47% comments have certainly taken a toll on mitt romney as well. for people registered voters who were given a full description of those comments, after hearing that full description, 45% had a more negative view of mitt romney. 23%, a more positive view. >> you think the open was too sports centery? >> i liked it. >> good. peter alexander in denver. thanks so much for bringing our debate day power panel. now, we asked all of you in advance for your pointers for each of the candidate and we're going to put those up on the screen as we talk about this. so joy, i want to start with you. let's show the tips you have for governor romney about the type of performance he needs to deliver on. don't try too hard. don't get too snippy. this is a tall order. you are trying to see mitt romney cast that leadership vision and in an area where there's a lot of pressure. >> they telegraph i

errors. i worked for president george w. bush, as you said, and in his first debate in 2004, a lot of people felt like he gave a subpar performance. and there's no question that we breathe some life into our opponents, and if president obama, who some have characterized as almost a messianic kind of figure, comes across as someone who does not have a real plan for second term, he could be looking at poll numbers that get even more tight. >> but if governor romney doesn't unveil some sort of grand plan for his first term, that won't move the needle at all either, will it? >> i really do disagree with you. i don't think that this election comes down to all the plans that governor romney has. and actually, i think his economic plan is pretty clear. i think it probably comes down to a group of voters who might have voted for president obama the first time, but for whatever reason, they're still undecided. they already know what president obama did his first term. they didn't like it. the question is, is he going to kind of change gears and do something different? be a little more of the t

george w. bush. also a romney supporter. matt, good afternoon to you, sir. >> great to be with you. >> is this the last best chance for governor romney? true or false? what do you think? >> i guess kind of true. it's a great opportunity. i think it's a big mistake for candidates, especially when they're running for president, to put all the marbles in a debate. because really what you want to do in a debate, is first of all, you don't want to be swinging so much for the fences that you make a lot of errors. i worked for president george w. bush, as you said, and in his first debate in 2004, a lot of people felt like he gave a subpar performance. and there's no question that we breathe some life into our opponents, and if president obama, who some have characterized as almost a messianic kind of figure, comes across as someone who does not have a real plan for second term, he could be looking at poll numbers that get even more tight. >> but if governor romney doesn't unveil some sort of grand plan for his first term, that won't move the needle at all either, will it? >> i really do disagre

something like or george w. bush or if mitt romney had made a speech and held up that kind of bomb and drew the line across it. it kind of boggles the mind, quite frankly. >> ambassador, what if this had been an american president doing something like this? >> well, i think obviously there's a certain backdrop to what happened during the whole question of -- during the bush administration of iraq. i think this was a kind of graphic way of trying to show something. would an american president do that at the u.n.? it's an open question. is it effective? if you're trying to explain an issue people have heard about, when you reduce it to something that makes it rather clear and tends to simplify it, it at least tends to clarify what you're talking about. i think what prime minister netanyahu was trying to do was to explain, where is the point where we would become concerned when we say we will prevent an iran from having a nuclear bomb, what's the point to lose the ability to prevent that? this was his way of demonstrating it. would it be effective for an american president? hard to say. i thin

years of george bush's policies, which is what romney wants to continue, what we had is 700,000 americans a month losing their jobs because of the deregulation of wall street, which romney wants to continue. we had the american and world financial system on the verge of collapse. an inch away from a world depression. that's what he inherited. has he done all that i would like him to do over the last four years? no, but has he stemmed that disastrous policy and protected the middle class? putting more people into health care, creating jobs for many, many months after the disastrous bush agenda? yes, he has. >> senator hutchinson, the undecided voters are the pivotal swing votes throughout the election. and in certain snap polls taken last night, uncommitted voters polled by cbs news called mitt romney the winner by a 2 to 1 margin. and 67% said their opinion of romney changed for the better after last night. mitt romney said a lot of what the president did wrong but gave few specifics on what he would do right. do you think that hurt him in the long-run on the reintroduction is w
